Product Portfolio
  • EQUIPMENT

  • Kalmar solutions set the benchmark for energy efficiency, reliability and lifetime value.
      • Automated guided vehicles

      • Automated guided vehicles (AGV) are fully automated machines that move containers between your quayside and your stack seamlessly. They have an electric power system which is highly eco-efficient and can be charged quickly while in operation, eliminating the need for battery swapping.

        Extend your choice.
        With nearly 20 years of experience in delivering fully automated solutions to container terminals globally, the Kalmar FastCharge™ AGV is built on a proven automation platform you can rely on. Constructed on an optimised steel platform that can handle loads of up to 70 tonnes, they are powered by an eco-efficient electric power system which can be quickly recharged through strategically located FastCharge™ stations while in operation, making them easier and more cost effective to maintain and run than traditional diesel-powered machines.
          • Automatic stacking cranes

          • Automatic stacking cranes (ASC) are rail-mounted cranesused for yard-stacking and in-stack transportation of containers. ASCs deposit and pick up containers from dedicated interchange areas located at both ends of the stack. The Kalmar Automated Stacking Crane is controlled and monitored by Kalmar TLS (Terminal Logistic System) software functions.

            Fully operational before breaking ground
            The next generation Kalmar ASC system gets your business ahead of the game, as we can now fully simulate and optimise your automated operations before the actual deployment on-site.
              • Automatic stacking crane terminal

              • Stacking up the space efficiency
                Automated stacking cranes enable the highest possible capacity and stacking density. The ASC terminal optimises throughput and stack footprint. When using Kalmar AutoShuttle™ as a feeder, apron size can also be minimised, making your terminal as space-efficient as possible. For greenfield terminals, the reduction in footprint size can result in significant capital cost savings, in terms of both land acquisition and terminal realisation. Alternatively, and for brownfield terminals, the space freed up could be used for an expansion of the stacking area that would enable you to increase operational income.
              • Automated truck handling

              • With automation your operations get faster, easier and more cost efficient. Now we take the automated yard a step further. Kalmar automated truck handling is the first solution in the world that automates your landside operation.
                Together with our other automation solutions for your operations it means a fully end-to-end automation.

                External truck loading uses a truck lane laser measurement system that pinpoints the exact locations of the truck trailers’ twistlocks, chassis or container. The measured target is automatically fed to the crane. Lifting as well as grounding of the containers is fully automated. Automated truck handling works with trailers with twistlocks, internal chassises and cassettes up to 4 TEU long.
